Pelham Research Optical Announces VUV/UV Filters, Beamsplitters And Broadband Metallic Mirrors For Analytical Applications

Pelham Research Optical, a leading manufacturer of VUV/UV bandpass filters and broadband metallic coatings, is proud to announce its complete line of coatings from 120-320mm. This new line of optical coatings extends to our Narrowband, Broadband and Broadband Metallic coatings by offering superior reflectance, transmission, bandwidth and out-of-band rejection to enhance our customer research and applications.

Pelham Research Optical VUV/UV bandpass filters offer excellent peak transmission bandwidth and out-ofband rejection and are ideal for a variety of analytical and astronomy applications. Key narrowband filter wavelengths include Lyman-alpha filters 121.6nm, 147nm, 172nm and 193nm.

Broadband filters from 130-320nm offer increased transmission and bandwidth while maintaining strong out-of-band rejection and are exceptional for less sensitive applications. Our filters are available at all wavelengths from 120-320nm.

Pelham Research Optical broadband metallic coatings offer superior VUV/UV reflectance down to 120nm. All PRO standard coatings for 120nm, 160nm, 190nm can be optimized for any wavelength in the 120-250nm range. While providing excellent VUV/UV reflectance, these coatings provide high reflectance throughout the visible to the IR, a Key component for increasing throughput for analytical applications.
